2010 – Living in the High North
Increased human activities in the Arctic, combined with climate change, will have significant implications for Arctic nations. The changing Arctic will have impacts on the natural environment and the subsistencebased communities it supports, as well as across the economic, political, and social landscape of the region. It is thus important to balance exploitation with conservation, and to develop sustainable communities.
Arctic Frontiers invited pan-Arctic stakeholders to Tromsø to share perspectives on upcoming environmental, social, and economic challenges in the Arctic and discuss how they perceived and intended to respond to the challenges. The vital roles of science, government, and the public, and the need for collaboration among these entities, were explored.
